Spanish Style Shrimp with Garlic

Maria Connors


This is a delicious, garlicky shrimp dish, reminiscent of the shrimp with garlic served in a good Spanish or Portuguese restaurant. Serve it with rice or crispy, thin sliced, fried potatoes and plenty of good crusty bread for dipping in the sauce. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!
